Sheffield face Norwich in this Championship 2017/18 clash.

When is the match, and kick off time?

The match is on Sunday 6th May 2018, and kicks off at 12:30pm UK time.


Norwich won't be able to rely on their individual players in this game, as Sheffield have been good at managing these threats in previous games. If Sheffield continue their solid defensive performance, they should be able to stop a lot of chances as they develop for their opponents. Sheffield should be able to continue their recent form, which has seen them give away very few chances in errors. Sheffield will hope that Norwich attack wide so they can prevent danger with their superior defence on the wings. Sheffield's defence have been tactically astute recently, and are on a good run of avoiding defensive errors.

Sheffield Vs Norwich Prediction

Sheffield and Norwich are evenly matched, so this should be a tight game. This should result in a draw, or a tough win for Norwich. A bet of £10 would return £27.40 for a home win, £39.42 for a draw, and £27.00 for an away win.

This is set to be an eventful match in which we are expecting Norwich to create more chances than Sheffield. Both teams will be looking for the win but Norwich have the stronger attack. We are expecting them to edge a victory in this match with both teams to score. Our prediction for this match is: Sheffield 1-2 Norwich.
